The full-blooded version of the big-budget action adventure based on the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua, attempts to place King Arthur within the historical context of his time (around 500 AD), and take into account many more historical and political facts of the era than previous interpretations of the legend. It also dispenses with much of the magic and fantasy that have shrouded events of the period, although Merlin (Stephen Dillane) does feature as a shaman who used his powers against the Romans. Clive Owen stars as Arthur, who, as England falls into chaos after the fall of the Roman Empire, gathers around him a band of brave knights, including Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd), Galahad (Hugh Dancy) and Gawain (Joel Edgerton), who hope to defeat the invading Saxon armies and restore peace and order to their country. Keira Knightley co-stars as Guinevere.
It's got a round table, some knights, and a noble warrior who rises to become King Arthur, but everything else about this revisionist legend is pure Hollywood. That's not such a bad thing if you enjoyed Rob Roy, Braveheart, Gladiator and Troy, and there's some intriguing potential in presenting the "real" Arthur (played by Clive Owen) as a 5th-century soldier of Rome, assigned to defend Roman-imperial England against a hoard of invading Saxons (led by Stellan Skarsgard in hairy villain mode). As revamped history and "archaeological findings" would have us believe, Guinevere (Keira Knightley) is a warrior babe in face-paint and Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd) is a nonentity who fades into the woodwork. Never mind. Best to enjoy the harsh, gloomy atmosphere of Irish locations, the ruggedness of Owen and his hearty supporting cast, and the entertaining nonsense of a Jerry Bruckheimer production that strips battle-ready Guinevere down to leather-strap S&M gear while all the men sport full-body armor. Hail to the queen, indeed! --Jeff ShannonSee all Product description

fighting for 'Rome'
however before freedom is finally granted they are ordered to complete one
their task -- they are to travel north into the lands of the 'Woads' to
bring back the 'Pope's' favourite nephew who with his father lives in
an isolated outpost set deep inside 'Wode' territory.
the mission becomes even more dangerous because of a new threat posed by
at the outpost they find a compound walled up, among those left to perish
'Woad' 'Guinevere' ( who of course is freed by 'Arthur' )
the 'Saxon' army is not only a threat to 'Merlin's' people in the north.
it is also a threat to those south of Hadrian's Wall behind which the
'Roman' legions are withdrawing.
both those north and south of the Wall now have a common enemy........
the invading 'Saxon's'
perhaps there are one or two 'casting' issues on board however though a
a film of recent years it is an action-packed epic adventure surely well
if like myself you have interest in the legend of King Arthur and Camelot
perhaps the one film that closely follows the well known legend and well
worth seeing if you have not yet done so, is the movie 'Excalibur'

Bad....really bad! So far away from the legends and stories I've read growing up I think the name Arthur was only used as a selling point. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Simon Tough
Clive Owen always superb actor. A tale with a plausible explanation of the existence of King Arthur and the Knights of the round table. A good adventurePublished 3 months ago by judy standen
